Thailand’s court system will soon begin using bailiffs to enforce bail conditions and as security for court personnel, property, and proceedings after a draft law was approved by the National Legislative Assembly.

During the first year of implementation, the Thai government will allocate over 20 million baht to hire 40 bailiffs, with 109 total court marshal positions filled within five years.

“In the past, Thailand has not utilized bailiffs to enforce court orders or track down those who jump bail, which has sometimes led to lengthy delays in the trial process,” said Jitsopin Narasettapong, a Thailand criminal lawyer.

The bailiffs will also be responsible for maintaining a peaceful environment in courts as well as protecting court personnel and judges.
